Boris Fritz, Engineer 5, Strike and Surveillance Systems Division, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems Boris is an Engineer 5 at Northrop Grumman Aerospace in charge of the Rapid Manufacturing Lab. He has three patents and is also part-time faculty at Loyola Marymount University. He has been very active with SME since the early nineties, founding its national Nano manufacturing Technical Group and as Chair of the Innovation Watch Committee. He has served on the board of the Manufacturing Enterprise Council and as National Chair of the Rapid Technologies & Additive Manufacturing Community and on their Advisory Board. Boris has also been on the Advisory Board of SME’s RAPID Conference as well as speaking at that conference on the State of the Industry of Nanomanufacturing.. He has published and presented many papers on Additive Manufacturing at numerous Universities in the US & Europe. He was also one of the subject matter experts on 5 continents who helped create the Additive Manufacturing Technology Roadmap for Australia 2011. Boris has been a member of the Foresight Nanotech Institute’s Roadmap Working Group and the U.S. representative to the Global Alliance of Rapid Prototyping Associations (GARPA). He was on the Editorial Advisory Board of Time Compression Technology Magazine and won 4 World Excellence Awards in the field of Stereolithography, 2 of them first place. (He also contributed to the prestigious Wohlers Report 2001 â€" 2003, 2007-2010 (providing the section on Nanotechnology) â€" the annual state of the Rapid Prototyping industry book published by Terry Wohlers From 2003-present, he spoke at USC’s Space Architecture Graduate Seminar for the Department of Astronautics. In 1998, he received the Outstanding Engineering Achievement Merit Award from the Engineers’ Council of California. Boris also worked as a consultant to JPL. He also took part in the National Geographic documentary 'Hitler's Stealth Fighter' available now on YouTube. He is also on the Advisory Board and faculty of Ananda College in Northern California.

Boris Fritz
Boris Fritz, an aerospace engineer with Northrop Grumman with a quarter-century of experience, holder of three patents, founded the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Nanomanufacturing Technical Group. He projects us into a future where virtual reality is real reality - programmable material used to build homes that can be "remodeled" at will with holodeck-like rooms where interiors can reshape themselves, furnished with volumetric pixels that conform to user's needs - a bed at night - desk or kitchen table during the day.
Boris Fritz, an engineer at Northrop Grumman with three patents in aerospace, for 40 years has been fascinated by the History of Religions, History of India, Sanskrit Language, and the Ancient Near East. He will introduce us to the Yuga Cycle and its variations in some 30 ancient civilizations throughout the world, demonstrating how these civilizations linked history to the precession of the equinox. There were higher ages in which man was vastly superior to the recent 'dark' ages. Ancient India preserves the keys to understanding what these ages were like, and Boris will show us how this ancient approach gives a completely new understanding of ancient as well as modern history.

If you'd like to see specifically what I mean, let's take a look at a news release I issued this week highlighting the speech given by Northrup Grumman's Boris Fritz at RAPID 2008.
This is not science fiction, according to Boris Fritz, an aerospace engineer, who outlined the potential uses of these so-called "respirocytes" during his remarks at RAPID 2008, a conference and exhibition sponsored by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).
[Okay, so now for the first time I put a name to my expert and also introduce the technical term 'respirocytes.' But I don't yet give more details about Boris nor do I burden this sentence with details about RAPID 2008 or SME.] Fritz believes that respirocytes - which function as artificial red blood cells capable of transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide throughout the body - could replace 10% of actual human blood cells to provide the extra four hours of intake-free, life-sustaining oxygen.
A video interview with Fritz is available now on the Low-Volume Manufacturers Association site at
[This is my real sales pitch. I want to attract readers to the L-VMA web site and to view my interview with Boris. But I was very patient in making sure that readers would want to hear more about Boris before I introduced this link.] Fritz is a senior engineer technical specialist in the Materials & Processes Laboratory at Northrop Grumman Corp. He is also founder and a past chairman of SME's Nanomanufacturing Technical Group.
Fritz told RAPID 2008 and L-VMA that he also is excited about the ability to use additive fabrication systems to produce programmable material - sometimes called utility fog or foglets - that can change shape, feel and bond based upon a user's needs.
As Fritz explained, in the future - perhaps as soon as 20 years hence -- billions of volumetric pixels (voxals) will be simply manufactured and programmed to conform to users' needs: a bed that can be used at night that then reforms itself to be a desk or kitchen table during the day.
Likewise, Fritz envisions a more distant future in which programmable material is used to build homes that can be 'remodeled' at will and holodeck-like rooms where the interiors can reshape themselves to match almost any desired scenery - including to-the-touch accurate human models.
Dean Rotbart, founder and director of L-VMA, says that Fritz highlights the fact that the additive fabrication industry - which most people think of as dealing with industrial prototypes and parts - is on the cutting edge of 21st Century technological advances.
"Investors, entrepreneurs and journalists who want to see tomorrow today should be talking to RAPID industry leaders such as Boris Fritz," he adds.
[This is my release. Although it may seem to be about Boris and his speech, it is really about the L-VMA.
